Sonic Impact Gen 2 T-Amp ?
 
Errr, I searched but didn't find anything. But then, my searches on DIYAudio frequently don't turn up what I was expecting.

So can it be that nobody has talked about the Sonic Impact T-Amp Gen 2?

$60 at Parts Express, looks prettied up from the first one, includes PS (3 A). Anyone heard it? Anyone looked inside yet? What is the same, what's different? Input caps, PS cap, potentiometer?

That's a new one on me!

1/2 way between the original and the Super-T?

At least you have a bigger case to work with. :)

Much better looking too!

Wow, $30 worth of extra plastic!!!!

I say buy the original and use the extra money on a nicer case.

I should have expected that! :) If that is the plan, go right to a kit.

Do you figure the changes are only cosmetic? I would hope they improved the LF response the the hookups.

Cheers,

Getting a nice case can be pretty expensive...

I think it was the PE page that mentions it is redesigned from the ground up. So who knows, it might be different inside. If nothing else I would hope to see larger input caps, if maybe not higher quality ones...

From the pics it looks like the speaker outs are still the cheapo clamps, and the line in is still a headphone plug.

Here's the PE page: http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=300-958

I can't imagine there is anything revolutionary inside. They could have at least put some cheap binding posts and RCA jacks on the back.

Says who? I think this is much nicer than a plastic clam shell and it's anything but expensive........

I find it very funny how SI used the heading "Pro Amplifiers" on their website.

It's also worth noting that they have reduced the listed output power of the standard SI and the Gen 2 to 5W per channel while leaving the Super-T's listing at 15W per channel... What a marketing ploy.
